This course is designed to explore the issues, controversies, theory, and paradigms developed in women's and gender history in the last 30 years. Emphasis will be placed on an introduction to the historiography, methodology, and theory of this rich field, and how it can further our knowledge and understanding of the past and the present.
There are four categories of obligation in this course:
- the weekly "core" reading assignments along with a weekly email to the class of roughly one page summarizing and commenting on the themes
- one written book report which must also be summarized in a five minute presentation in class
- A "think piece" paper on a topic you and I have chosen together
- leading a discussion for one session.
This course is designed for graduate students who plan to research or teach in the field of U.S. women's/gender history OR would like to incorporate such scholarship and methodology into their research and teaching.
